WINIX Technologies: Team of mavericks leading the IOT Product development Space in India
It is an undeniable truth that India has always faced severe challenges on its path towards becoming a leading manufacturing base for electronic products in global ecosystem. In the year 2014, Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi launched ‘Make in India’ project as an initiative towards making India the hub of the global manufacturing. An amazing duo of tech enthusiasts, Subhajeet Roy & Ajay Singh aligned their aspirations with this project and came together to establish WINIX Technologies, a leading Wireless hardware and software solution provider for IOT and Audio Streaming Product in May, 2015. Having gathered a rich experience while working with leading multinational companies in the past, these two techies identified the prevailing gaps in the landscape of electronic products manufacturing in India. They conceptualized WINIX Technologies with the vision of developing absolutely genuine and robust products that would perform even in the most difficult situations. With more than forty years of extensive experience held by the management team in building IOT and Streaming products The team WINIX takes the credit of developing some of the most popular Audio streaming products for international Tier 1 customers.
WINIX has been providing its state of the art solutions on Low latency audio streaming to Tier1 Original Equipment Manufacturers. Winix’s best-in-class technology makes video and audio streaming possible from source to destination in nearly seventeen meters (milliseconds) all over standard Wi-Fi; which is actually a next to impossible task. Besides this, WINIX’s rich portfolio envelops two exclusive IOT products, WI- MAP & WI-CAM, which exhibit strong potential in changing the face of security space in our country. Let’s take a brief look into them:
- WI-MAP: An Indoor Location Intelligence Platform, WI-MAP combines best of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth low energy and sensors. The product is developed to serve retail infrastructures and to accurately define POS (Point of Sale) by knowing customer movement in real-time. Wi-MAP can also enable parents and teachers to know the location of their kids in real-time. It can be used to collect movement of people through an area; to provide them with turn-by-turn indoor guidance on a map or floor plan; trigger actions when a device is near or leaves a point of interest; and follow in real-time the movements of people and assets and more . It is notable that with all these features a person’s privacy is completely secured.
- WI-CAM: This product completely survives on Wi-Fi and stands tall among other as it saves from huge cost of cabling and hustle of wiring. Not only that, it differs from other Internet Protocol (IP) cameras as it creates a powerful and self reorganizing Wi-Fi mesh network which can cover huge areas. Empowered with WINIX’s state of the art (IDAA) Interference detection and Avoidance algorithm, WICAM possesses strong capabilities in providing remote monitoring of furthest corners of a building which are far away from the internet hotspot right from a smart phone. Also, Wi-CAMs are equipped with Winix’s state of the art face detection technology, which enables them to match faces with pre-stored ones. Furthermore, they can detect not moving object like a stationary suitcase in a busy area and generate alerts for security if needed. Multiple Wi-CAMs can be installed to monitor different spaces and can be managed simultaneously using a single APP on Android or IOS phone.
In such a short span of time, WINIX has gained a strong foothold in the market building creative and powerful products that guarantee highest standards of quality. With a strong focus on earning clients’ trust and reputation in the market, the team strives to innovate and develop groundbreaking products that promise great Quality and performance and are dedicated to solve major business as well as social problems that act as impediments in the path of India’s growth. It involves in continuous Research and Development to stay informed about the latest technologies and upgradation on the old ones and move ahead towards achieving their mission.
The firm started its operations on a venture capital business model. Initially, the firm had to face some challenges to bring in investment as it is always difficult to find investment for technical companies in India especially when one wants to build electronic hardware products. The team had to put determined efforts and prove their engineering skills to the investors abroad to make them believe that genuine products can actually be built from India. Finally, its inventive concepts succeeded in convincing Japanese firms, who are in business of creating quality products for last thirty five years, to invest in their ideas. Now, these investors also act as WINIX’S partners and provide guidance to the team towards maintaining quality of products and about market needs.
Driven towards innovate continually, the team WINIX is now focused on a plan to come up with another pioneering IOT product ‘Greener Building Solution’ by the fall of 2017. The product would leverage IOT to monitor power consumption of big building and take real-time measures to save power in critical areas. With the help of this product, customers will be able to view their power consumptions in real-time and they can also see the measures taken to bring that consumption down. It will be win-win situation for both customers and WINIX as for the subscription of the service customers will only have to pay a fraction of the money saved in consumption.
